WILDERNESS PERIL - Elizabeth Goddard - One Free Book

I love it when I get to interview dear friends. Welcome back, Beth. Why did you become an author?
I don’t think I had a choice, really. I loved to read, and the dream to write a novel was burning inside. All I needed was a way to get there, which I found when I joined American Christian Fiction Writers.

If you weren’t an author, what would be your dream job?
Oh, great question. I have so many thoughts on what I’d like to be on any given day, maybe that’s why I write. I can pursue different careers through my characters. But I think I mostly lean toward science. At one point, I wanted to be a marine biologist. In the end, and if I were much younger, I’d maybe choose to work for NASA.

If you could have lived at another time in history, what would it be and why?
Well, the world wasn’t the best place for woman until recent decades! LOL And we didn’t have penicillin until 1928 to combat certain illnesses, so thank you very much, but I’ll stay in the present. But maybe … maybe … I’d enjoy the middle ages (without the plague) because I love castles and knights and chivalry.

What place in the United States have you not visited that you would like to?
My parents took us all over on our vacations, and then as a professional I traveled to almost every state in the country. But I haven’t been to Hawaii, and I’d love to see the volcano.

How about a foreign country you hope to visit?
 Love Scotland, Italy, and Greece—would love to visit.

What lesson has the Lord taught you recently?
That no dream is ever dead.

That is so true. And even sometimes, when we think a particular season in our lives is over, God may bring it back again. That’s what happened in my life this last year. Now Beth, tell us about the featured book.
Wilderness Peril is the sequel to Treacherous Skies and Riptide, my “Learjet repo man” stories. I think I love Wilderness Peril the best because I love the hero, Rick Savage, and his journey. When I wrote the last few chapters, I kept hearing that song, “Overcome” by Jeremy Camp, in my head, and I knew that was my hero’s song.

Here’s the blurb: ON THIN ICE
Run off the road and left for dead, Shay Ridiker's only hope for surviving the frozen claws of the wilderness is pilot Rick Savage. The beautiful airplane mechanic came to Alaska expecting a routine repo, but a missing coworker and a crippled plane are just the tip of the iceberg. Now held captive by ruthless killers at a derelict gold mine, Shay needs Rick's protection more than ever. But Rick has shadows that follow him into the land of the midnight sun. With gunmen at their backs, can he be all Shay needs—a haven … and a hero?

Please give us the first page of the book.

Interior Alaska
“Your brother ever show?” Shay Ridiker asked as she climbed into the passenger seat of an old rusty Jeep Cherokee. She fought to keep her voice calm and to shake off the eerie, uncomfortable feeling that she was being watched.

She might be one of the best aircraft mechanics around and people might think she was tough because of it, but that didn't mean she could handle a day of travel to Nowhere, Alaska, without her nerves starting to kick in, especially if there was a chance they would have to face trouble.

And trouble was exactly what she saw in Rick Savage’s gunmetal grays. “No,” he said.

Aiden Savage—a fellow employee of Deep Horizon Recovery Services—was supposed to have met them two hours ago to lead them to the plane he had come to Alaska to repossess—only it needed a mechanic, hence why Aiden had asked for Shay’s help. They’d arrived to find no sign of him. But Aiden … He had a few troubles. Wasn't always the most dependable person, and maybe this was one of those times.
